83% of households we help are families with children
We provide stable housing and other services for more than 1,000 working-class families each year
11% of Virginia families live in poverty
We help working households as well as individuals with fixed incomes to obtain housing that is affordable, by providing individualized case management that will help them address structural barriers to long-term housing like poor credit histories, itinerant rental histories, little or no savings, and low incomes.

GSH provides grants up to $350 per family in the period of a year to prevent evictions and utility disconnections, or help with first months rents and security deposits.
